Our link for the Ripmo is perfect for riders that love to push the limits of what they can do on their bike. While already starting with a great platform, descending performance is increased with the Cascade Components upper link and shock yoke combination. The rear suspension sees the progression increased to 28% from 19% with the stock linkage. This increase in progression is what allows the bike to maintain excellent traction across small rocks and roots while also allowing the bike to better resist bottoming out on bigger hits and compressions. Additionally, coil and large volume air shocks (like the Float X2) are now better suited to the bike. This increase in progression is a feel that can not be replicated by compression tunes and volume spacers alone. If you love your Ripmo but desire just a bit more, look no further.
